The Song of Texas I fear no haughty nation Though foes all 'round are piled; For now I take my station As Uncle Sammy's child. cho: For Texas now is Free! Young Texas now is free! And when I shine among the stars How happy I shall be! Though Mexico in pride now, Begins to threaten blows, I'll grin at Sammy's side now, With my thumb upon my nose. In 'thirty-six I was of age, Took Liberty's degrees, And to unite I have a right, With any state I please. In Liberty's pure laws, now, Uncle Sam and I are one, And I will aid his cause, now, For Sister Oregon. With Freedom's fire prolific, We'll clear our rightful bound, From Atlantic to Pacific Is Uncle Sam's own ground. last Chorus The whole shall yet be free, The whole shall yet be free, And Uncle Sam shall have it all In peace and Liberty. From The American History Songbook, Silverman RG
